Coastel Defence Complex Akrotiria

This bunker was build during the Second World War by Bulgarians under supervision by Germans.
The main purpose was to protect the coast for an amphibious assault by Russians or even the Turkish in case they would join the Allies.
On picture 3 you can see in red the coastal artillery spots and in green the bunker.
Also visible are the trenches.
